On Abovethelaw, lawyer-journalist, Kathryn Rubino, captures some of the struggle. What Dean observes is that Donald Trump's mode of rhetorical interaction seems to simulate that of a seven-year old.
Remember your days back in the schoolyard. The Nasty Girl calls you an "ugly witch." In typical seven-year-old manner, you push back with, "Ugly witch." But with a louder voice. And a face more contorted with rage.
As a seven-year-old, you feel that you managed the situation just right.
So does Trump. Or, so Dean speculates.
However, there are more of us who have gone into Trumpism fatigue. Every day of the volatile campaign we devoted our best thinking to deconstruct the provocative political moves. On Election Night we were totally engrossed in Lessons Learned. Then came the first month of the actual administration.
That was then.
Currently, money seems to have been loosened up. Emerging are more professional opportunities. Our attention has to shift back to work. You bet, follow the money.
In addition, for those of us who leverage social media for new business development many of the keywords associated with Trumpism are no longer clickbait. For instance, "Drudge Report" in the subject line could bring in 4,000 page views during a few hours. More recently, that would attract only about 350 over 24 hours.
Prediction: Space is being created for other personalities to surface for us to analyze - and get an adequate payoff from that. Trumpism as a thought leadership investment seems to be reaching the point of diminishing returns.
